George Monk or Monck, 1st Duke of Albemarle (6 December 1608 – 3 January 1670), second son of Sir Thomas Monk, a gentleman of good family but in embarrassed circumstances, was born at Potheridge, near Torrington, in Devonshire.
Having thrashed the under-sheriff of the county in revenge for a wrong done to his father, he had to leave home, and naturally took up soldiering.
Monck was, however, soon taken prisoner, at Nantwich (1644), and spent the next two years in the Tower, where he found it difficult to live owing to his want of means.
